ATC Swap...

I am looking for 6 people to take part in an ATC swap (Artists trading Cards) The details have been passed on to me by a friend who emigrated to Australia.
The Rules: Sent to me in a letter.
"You only need send out 6 ATCs to get loads back. This swap scheme is an effort to exchange ATCs in an expanding universe of creators.
Make and mail an ATC to each person on the list below. (List to be supplied to swappers only). Then remove the top name and add your name to the bottom of the list.
ATCs should measure 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Use any media - textiles, threads, paint, plastics, mixed media etc, etc. The choice of subject is yours, or you may prefer an abstract or patterned design. There are no rules except the size. Put your name and address on the back of each card."
So, if you would like to take part in this then please leave a comment and a way of getting in contact with you so that I can then pass the rest of the details on to you. I really need to contact via email so that I can try and send you pictures of some examples produced by those on the list already.
These should be quite quick to make and you could make 6 all the same as they are going to different people.
I am on half term this week so I would really like to get this organised pretty quickly. Do not worry if you have never made these before, neither have I!!
So I shall say that the deadline for sign up will be next Wednesday 17th February, or as soon as I have the 6 names taking part whichever happens first.
So the first 6 comments saying "Yes" but I will have a back up list too.
It would be nice if you could blog about the cards and link back to this blog as part of the swap.
Many thanks for the lots of lovely comments about our kitchen, my hubby is practically blushing with pride and embarrassment!
Any questions about the above just email me, see profile section.
Take care all.

Well your hubby should be proud and blushing over all the comments! He really did a great job on your kitchen. As far as the ATC cards go I might be able to help you out. I haven't ever made any before either. Let me know what you think. Is there a short time line for doing this?

What a beautiful blog you have!!!! I will be watching more blog regularly for sure!

As much as I would love to join this ATC swap, I will have to decline right now. I am up to my eyeballs in sewing for the nursery. My little boy will be making his grand debut the end of April and I want to get the nursery ready while I still am not too too big and have a little bit of energy. Keep an eye on my blog if you are interested in the nursery developments!

Good luck on your swap! I'll be interested in seeing the results!

Nice idea, I'm all ATCed out at the moment though. I'm in a group called ATCs4all and we swap every month - phew !!
Why not pop by sometime. Have a lovely half term.

Hi, I'm just popping round to the other members of the 20 minuters to give them the opportunity to join in the Gift draw in our blog shop. It is partly down to the encouragement of MarmaladeRose that I am still really enjoying doing my 20 minutes of crafting every day and this is stocking the shelves in our shop. I hope you will pop over and join in the fun. The draw will be made on Mon 22nd Feb so this is the last week. If you choose to join in Good Luck. :-)
Many thanks,
A x

Hi Andrea! I am not an artist by any means, but I do make almost all my cards, so I would like to do this. Email me at, and give me the details.
